Cassia is a type of cinnamon. Cassia is prepared from the dried inner bark of a certain evergreen tree. Cassia is mostly used in the form of a powder obtained from the bark and essential oil derived by steaming leaves, seeds, twigs and flowers which is termed as Cassia powder. Cassia bark is utilized as a flavoring agent in confectionery, pastries and meat. It tends to be a dark brown-red in color with thicker sticks and a rougher texture.
Cassia twig is also a very common ingredient in tonic herbal blends and classic Chinese formulations.
When using the whole bark or twig slices in home brews and tonic tea formulas, it is important to decoct or simmer them on very low heat as over-boiling will compromise beneficial compounds.
